  • Meet the Pyro [GO/ER]

    Ever wondered what it was like to be the Pyro? What the Pyro sees and thinks? You may never sleep again… Man, Valve is so awesome…

  • What I’ve Been Doing 14 May 2012 [FB/IB/F/BT/GO]

    Want people to get a taste of your game? Have a free weekend. I put in 11 hours and I probably would have bought the game if it wasn’t for Diablo 3 dropping tomorrow. Sorry, Tropico 4. Maybe next Steam sale. Movies Election – The prototype that all kinds of high school shows like Popular […]

  • Social Gaming (As It Stands) is a BANE ON HUMANITY [GO/YCQMOT]

    To the abovementioned small man and to others like him, to all the craftsmen of these mommy’s-credit-card-number-snatching games like Tap Zoo and Tap Pet Shop and Top Girl and what-have-you, I offer this lesson from the annals of economics: “Monetize” is a fucking stupid word. The idea of a business is to make money. “To […]

  • 2010 in Video Games [GO]

    As is typical of me, I played a ton of video games this year. Here’s a listing of what I played along with a few short (or long) words on each game. For the most part, this list is restricted to games released in 2010 unless I did not play them until this year. It’s […]

  • Getting to Know Your Friends [Game Overview]

    New Super Mario Brothers Wii is marriage poison. -Gabe (AKA Jerry Holkins). “The Fullness of Time“ In the past two months I’ve learned one very important truth about my friends: they’re complete jerks. Not in any friendship kind of way, but in the if-it-came-down-to-it-would-they-have-my-back kind of way. It all started with New Super Mario Bros. Wii. […]

  • Best Video Games of the Decade [Game Overview]

    You may notice some games that are missing from this list and are on every other list. Well, I didn’t play everything because I didn’t have the time or the money, so that accounts for some of the big misses like Pyschonauts or Resident Evil 4. Other games are deliberately omitted :cough: HALO :cough: This […]

  • My Favorite Bands/Albums/Musical Concepts of the 2000s [Feedback]

    It’s really been tough coming up with the music that has most resonated with me in the 2000s. Wanting to represent the entire decade is tough, since I don’t really find the music that I used to listen to before I went to college all that good. Once I had more money and exposure beyond […]

  • L4D2: Great Game or Greatest Game [GO]

    I honestly can’t stop gushing about L4D2, it’s that good. Since I last wrote I’ve played through the Swamp Fever campaign (still haven’t beaten any on expert) on cooperative mode too and every map but The Parish (final map) on versus and I’ve been enjoying every minute. BULLET POINTS ARE GO! – As predicted, the […]

  • NSMBW and L4D2 Impressions [Game Overview]

    Last night was most definitely a game night, the likes of which I haven’t had in ages. Ian and Darek were both over to play some New Super Mario Bros. Wii and I was curious about whether or not I could ruin more friendships, so I started the evening with tomfoolery in mind. In our […]

  • Left 4 Dead Trailer Leaked [Game Overview]

    Insert another credit, because it’s time for your weekly video game news and you’ve just hit the Game Overview screen. We’ve gone and hit the mother lode, folks. A Left 4 Dead 2 trailer was “leaked” (I don’t believe in PR leaks of things this awesome…) and is making its way around the nets. Just […]
